Does anyone have a checklist of questions, or things to consider, for the purchasing of a boat (new or used)? Basically I''m looking for a list of things to find out about in the process of evaluating a potential boat.
No, I was thinking beyond the consideration of the kind of boat. Let''s say you''ve narrowed it down to several makes/models and now I am looking at a specific boat (ie. Caliber 35). I want to make a list of things to consider or investigate such as: 1. What are the age/condition of the sails? 2. How many hours on the engine? 3. Is there a maintenance log? Etc. In other words, I want to come up with a consideration checklist to help evaluate the boat.
Thanks for the outline! That''s exactly what I was looking for and I''m going to convert that to a checklist questionaire. Problem with looking at a boat is that there is so much information overload upon the initial visit. This will help focus on the objective consideration needed. Again, thanks!
PS. ANy opinion on internal tanks such as the Caliber''s have???
